    At least Kerry served with you and earned his medals?
    Remember that 2010 Romney quote where he said "I wish I could have been over there and served with the guys"?
    Even Cheney wasn't that crass--he only sent 4,500 to die in the new killing fields .

    The mistake you made was coming into a $arah Palin thread and trying to be serious .

    Everyone already knows that. Nonetheless, grad school generally denotes a minimum level of cognitive skills.

    Which would be an academic accomplishment that actually is indicative of the person being intelligent.
    My point was that not completing school, or jumping around schools, doesn't inherently mean a person is unintelligent.

    Better factors to gauge Palin would be her professional record. The woman fancies herself a political powerhouse but abandoned her term in office to further her own career. That tells me all I need to know about her political credibility and intelligence. But were that not enough, I've seen her speak enough times to have plenty else to use.

    Kerry actually fought.

    Could America do that today ? No.



    3/4 of the males in America can't even meet the minimum standers to serve in today's U.S. military.

    America is no longer a nationalistic country as it was for it's first 200 years, Russia still is.
    Minimum what?

    Don't you think 3/4's is an exaggeration?

    Touché.

    I suppose I'm a bit sensitive on the topic since I have nothing more than a high school diploma and a handful of practical, career-focused college courses under my belt. And despite being active and outgoing in extracurricular activities (co-president of Drama Club, Asst. Editor and Chief of the school newspaper), I barely managed to get that high school diploma on time. I just wasn't a good fit for the classroom environment.

    But despite that, I'm now a Vice President for a technology firm in the economic development industry, and I'm only 34. While I do sometimes chuckle at the title, it does represent the high end of my responsibilities to the company. That being said, I doubt I would have climbed the ladder I've climbed if not for a decent amount of intelligence.

    Reminds me of the encyclopedia of the universe in Hitchiker's Guide....
